Can I Collect WAEC Certificate Without Going to School?

WAEC Certificate/Original Result

A few candidates already knew that to collect their WAEC school candidates' exams, they have to go back to the schools where the exams were held.

The original results/certificates, which are expected to be available at different secondary schools that participated in the April/May of May/June series, within a year of the exams, are expected to be given to candidates physically by their exam officers or principals.

However, some candidates are seeking means to still collect their WAEC for-school candidates, internal, April/May, or May June series certificates, or original results without going back to their schools.

Of course, a few candidates will need other ways around this if they're no longer within the same communities or not closer. Some had done the exams long ago but there was an urgent need to use the original certificates or results.

Is there a way to get these WAEC certificates without going back to school?

Can WAEC Original Results/Certificates Be Collected By a Proxy?

It's not officially allowed for a candidate to apply for or request his certificate by sending another person on his or her behalf.

However, this is not uncommon. Depending on the situation that warrants the collection of the certificates on behalf of the candidates, a school, using its decretion and following thorough procedures, can still issue the certificates on behalf of the students.

Even WAEC allows the WAEC private candidates' certificates to be collected by proxies if all terms are met. The body equally can send the certificates outside the country.

Hence, following similar ethics, it could be safe for an individual school to issue a candidate's certificate to another person on the former's behalf and with instructions.
